BTS and Charli XCX are collaborating and the internet can't handle it

They've both been registered as composers on a new song called 'Glow'.
A new song called ‘Glow’ has been registered by BPI, which lists Charli - real name Charlotte Aitchison - and all members of the Korean pop group as composers, alongside producers Stargate.
It’s not clear yet whether the track will actually feature Charli as a performer as well as a composer, but she has been a fan of the K-pop group for a while, posting a photo to Twitter with them in 2017 with the caption “first day as the newest member of @BTS_twt. love u guys.”
Charli has a history of writing for other artists alongside her own music, lending her skills as a songwriter for hire to songs by Icona Pop, Selena Gomez, MØ, Camilla Cabello, will.i.am and more.
BTS are no strangers to collaboration either: recently they joined forces with Halsey for their song ‘Boy with Luv’ and also teased a collaboration of some sort with the Jonas Brothers earlier this month. Meanwhile, Charli recently released new song ‘Blame It On Your Love’ with Lizzo.

But whether Charli features on the new BTS track or not, it looks like we can expect more music from her soon either way. Today, she took to Twitter to announce her plan to release new songs over the coming months, writing: “angels, your mother is about to feed you new music for 5 months straight. you deserve it and you’re welcome”. We can’t wait.
